My Favorite Historical Romance Novel Series for 2012

2012 was an amazing year for romance novel series.

First, after a year of waiting, Sherry Thomas released three books successively and two e-novellas (a happy thing for a Sherry Thomas fan like me).

Then, Julie Anne Long released the next installment in her Pennyroyal Green series and her Adam and Eve are just so, so, so lovable. Also Maya Banks' first foray into historical romance was incredibly successful and introduced us to swoon-worthy Highlanders and strong heroines. (I'm really glad that she started a new historical romance series, The Montgomerys and Armstrongs, and I look forward to reading it in 2013. ^_^)

Finally, there's Tessa Dare's brilliantly, wonderfully, cleverly funny characters, which include Colin Sandhurst (one of my favorite heroes for 2012) and a sheep named Dinner.

I had a hard time narrowing it down to 5 so I'm listing 6 and listing another 6 as special mentions because they are all just so memorable. (Elizabeth Hoyt should be in the Top 6 but she made my list last year so she's top of my Special Mention list. Same goes for Sabrina Jeffries, who completed her Hellions series in a most spectacular way.)

1. Sherry Thomas's Fitzhugh Family Series (complete)



2. Julie Anne Long's Pennyroyal Green Series (ongoing)



3. Maya Banks' McCabe (Highlander) Trilogy (complete)



4. Maggie Robinson's Courtesan Court Series (complete)



5. Renee Bernard's Jaded Gentlemen Series (ongoing)



6. Tessa Dare's Spindle Cove Series (ongoing)



Special Mention:

Sabrina Jeffries's Hellions of Halstead Hall Series (complete)
Kate Moore's Sons of Sin Trilogy (complete)
